experience. >> jessica, thanks very much. we will be checking back with you as well. dana bash is over in the rotunda inside the capitol. getting some good access to pokes who were arriving, including the spot, where the president will be making his big entrance about an hour or owe from now. dana, what are you seeing? what are you hearing? >> that's right. >> this really is a great location because in the capitol rotunda we will see the president minutes after the swearing in ceremony happens. he will come lou here and walk over towards the senate side of the capitol for a signing ceremony. what that effectively does put himself and cabinet on the payroll but it really is an indication about how every single minute of this ceremony is choreographed for today's imagery and tomorrow's history. this is where the president will start his walk towards history. steps few take once, even fewer, twice. now we are in the crypt of the capitol. >> the president will come down these stairs. >> reporter: senator chuck schumer chair it is inaugural committee and will personally escort the president

. senior congressional correspondent dana bash is here with me. you talked to senator charles schumer. what is he saying today? >> it is very interesting. i was obviously -- that's building that i'm very familiar w i cover that building. i walk -- hi, everybody. >> hello. >> i walk the halls of that building in -- every single day. and to see the transformation as it happened was remarkable. people may not realize that it's the chair and ranking member of what's called the senate rules committee that are really in charge of making this happen and i talked to the chair, senator chuck schumer of new york. here's a little bit of what he told me about how the preparation has gone on. >> you know, it started close to a year ago, we didn't know hot president would be. it is done in a barton way, lamar alexander and i and he is the vice chair and we do things as much as together as you can. you have to build a platform, 1600 people h the most coveted seats in america, any time. the number of seats. >> i can't imagine. >> just huge. >> you just saw the building of that platform. i will give you som
bloodied by one of the most notorious shootings in california history. dana bash was over at the emotional announcement on capitol hill. tell our viewers, dana, how it unfolded. >> reporter: wolf, of all of the gun control measures that president obama announced earlier this month, banning the assault weapons at least reviving the ban is going to be the most difficult to pass here in congress. even the primary senate sponsor says it will take years. for dianne feinstein, it's personal. >> supervisor harvey milk have been shot and killed. >> reporter: the death of her colleagues, including harvey milk, the first openly gay public official in america was so traumatic, she rarely discusses it. you were very close to that tragic shooting. but here at the launch, she announced it great detail. >> i was the one who found supervisor milk's body and put a finger in a bullet hole trying to get a pulse. once you have been through one of these episodes, one you see what the crime scene is like, it changes your view of weapons. >> she put on an elaborate event. even getting permission from d.c. to dis
. obviously this game will win out tonight. correspondent dana bash joins us. who is planning to be there and who isn't? which i know is a political statement in a political town. >> what's fascinating is they built this platform, 1,600 seats are available on the platform. it is tradition for the supreme court justices to be there. they will be there for the joint chiefs of staff to be there. they will be there. and for governors, senators and lawmakers as well as, of course, members of the president and vice president's family. for the most part, we do expect lawmakers to be there. one thing that we were sort of looking at is whether house republicans are going to come. deirdre walsh, our house producer, was at the republican retreat last week. and she heard several members saying, you know, it's a long weekend, a holiday weekend. i'm going to go home. they didn't feel compelled to be here necessarily. we'll be watching to see that. this is traditionally a nonpartisan event. i don't even say bipartisan. this is a tribute to the system working. so it is a second inaugural, but
, he'll be on the west front of the capitol for his ceremonial swearing in and inaugural speech. dana bash is on the west front. what a view from up there. >> that's right. it is a remarkable view. if our viewers can see what we're seeing and what the president will see tomorrow, you can effectively see down to where you are down the national mall to about the middle of the mall i should say. a spectacular view. sparsely populated right now but it will look different tomorrow. take you back to where i am right now and i am in front of where the president will give the ceremonial, i guess, the ceremonial oath behind me. this is a platform that they started building three and a half months ago and candy, you know, you are here regularly every four years, 1600 people sit on this platform and it's the hottest ticket in town. it is going to be really a remarkable symbol, i think, and everybody here, democrats and republicans, say symbol of the fact there aren't tanks in the streets, no matter the political differences we see every day in the capitol, this is something seamless considering.
of that 1963 march. earlier he told dana bash what he was feeling as he watched america's first african-american president take the oath for the second time. >> i did everything possible today to keep from crying. when i saw him standing there, taking the oath with the bible of martin luther king jr., knowing that just 50 short years ago, that dr. king stood on the steps of the lincoln memorial and said i have a dream. >> of course, this was actually the fourth time that president obama has taken the oath of office. let's bring in our panel, van jones, cnn contributor who served as president obama's green jobs adviser in 2009. sally quinn, margaret hoover, republican consultant, cornell belcher, democratic strategist who served as a pollster for president obama's 2012 re-election team. i wonder how you think this anniversary, this martin luther king day, informed and was infused throughout president obama's remarks today. >> i'll go back to even when he was senator obama. he always talked about, he also understood the gravity and talked about, i stand on the shoulders of the great men a
to give some ground in the debt fight. dana bash is joining us now. dana, are the republicans in the house of representatives blinking a little here? what's going on? >> a little, wolt if. they say they are going to have a vote that will delay the debt ceiling for three months. so what they are doing, if you really look at house republicans who took the majority two years ago, they did it standing on principle for pretty much every squirmish. it seems that they are becoming a bit more sophisticated, rather, but their understanding, it seems, is that you have to pick your battles. losing credit ratings and so forth, that's not a smart battle to wage. look at some of the most conservative members of the house talking to deirdre walsh at the end of their retreat for three days about picking their battles in a better way. >> deal with the smaller ones first, maybe build up a little momentum, credibility, not only with the credit markets but with the folks back home, that we can actually deal with these things, take the small one first, debt ceiling last, i think it's a rational, reasonable thi
for the traditional inauguration day church service and then up to the capitol where we find dana bash. >> thanks, brianna. i am on the west front of the capitol and this is where you're going to see that iconic image of the inauguration, 24 hours from now. this platform will seat about 1600 people and it is really the hottest it ticket in town. you're going to have members of the president and vice president's family, also going to have members of the joint chiefs of staff, the supreme court, governors, senators, house members, actually hearing that some house republicans are not going to be here, even though this is traditionally a bipartisan -- actually a nonpartisan event. this is also the kind of event that draws celebrity supporters. we had james taylor concert effectively here, practicing to sing "america the beautiful" tomorrow, beyonce will be here as well. i want you to look down the mall to see what everybody here is going to see tomorrow. doesn't look like a lot of people now, but we expect to see 600,000 to 800,000 people filling the national mall where don lemon is right now. >> oh,
. dana bash is live in washington. let's talk about dianne feinstein's props first. she's going to be holding a bushmasterer? >> reporter: i'm not sure if she'll be holding it. she might. she will have more than one assault weapon and she's going to have them on display. there you see the bushmaster ar-15. that is was, of course, the kind of weapon used in the newtown shootings. but the reason she is going to do this, i'm told, is to show specifically her fellow democrat, of which there are half a dozen or more that want to do little if anything to change the assault weapon laws, that you don't need these kinds of guns in the average of ordinary people. that is likely the argument she is going to make. again, it's going to be aimed at her fellow democrats resistant to this. but she is going to have a lot of different people with her to make this argument. this is the unveiling of the premier key legislation she promised to put out at the beginning of congress right after newtown. we are expecting to have quite a show when she comes up in about an hour. >> just so people understa
